Dubai, January 26, 2014
An inmate with Aids in Dubai Central Jail, accused of trying to mix his blood in tea meant for other inmates, has been given an additional six months in jail, a report said.
He has been found guilty of endangering the lives of 40 prisoners, The Gulf News website report said.
The Dubai Court of First instance also found the 20-year-old Emirati guilty of threatening a Bangladeshi prison worker, who was serving food to the 40 prisoners.
The defendant entered a not guilty plea citing “illogical accusation”, but the presiding judge refused to accept it, the report said.
